BLOCKS by SIZE 5" Quilt Blocks

For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.

Cross and Crown

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Cross and Crown quilt block is one of many biblical blocks you will find on this website.

The quilt layout featured below on the left finishes each block with large corner triangles to enlarge the block and also to add extra pops of colour to the quilt. Careful colour placement of these large triangles is what achieves the sort of "colour blocking" effect in the resultant quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets whole and half blocks on point and separates the blocks with sashing strips. The completed quilt design has a sort of "plaid" look as a result -- (at least in my opinion).
